    Re: Keep an application open

    You would need some sort of additional utility that checks the running proccess list for the app you want restarting and then if it goes from the list it must have ended so it will restart it.

    Whats the app you want to restart?

    Thats the sorta thing im after

    Its basically just an ica session so it would need to run something like:

    'C:/citrix/pm.exe /chellaston.ica'

    is the citrix session terminating? you could tell the server to not disconnect idle sessions.

    Maybe you can use one of those programs that coverts a program into a service for that. Not sure if it will get rid of GUI etc but worth looking at.

    You can do that with WMI scripting, even from a remote computer if necessary. If you want to do it that way, the basic info you need is at:

    What are you trying to achieve? Are people incapable of clicking a shortcut on the desktop?

    Re: Keep an application open

    depending on the application, then running it as a service is probably ur best option
